      Hi, You will need to complete your ABET4 – Adult Basic Education and Training, this is equivalent to passing Grade 9. Then you can apply at TVET College to do your NC(V) – National Certificate Vocational. To find an ABET centre, ask at your nearest library or community centre. All the best, Kath

    Hi this us Nanka and need some help of getting a scholarship in westerford for grade 9 next year

      Kath Morse says:

      Hi Nanka, If your family is struggling to pay your fees you can apply for a fee subsidy with the school bursar. Go by her office and ask to collect the forms. The School Governing Body will assess your family income and adjust your fees to make them more manageable. You can even do that for this year. There are no bursaries to start in Grade 9 however during Grade 9 you can apply to Capitec. You can also apply to Investec via SAILI (so contact me again in July next year). You need to be a top maths achiever for both bursaries. Also you must take Physics to matric for the INVESTEC/ SAILI bursary. Kind regards, Kath

    Hello there:) I would like to apply for next year, 2020 for my daughter. She is in Grade 8 and will be in Grade 9 next year. She is very hard working and determined and cannot afford to put her in a Good High School that she deserves to be in. In term 2 she got 70% and more, her highest percentage in her report is 100%. She attends Belhar High School in Belhar. She is very ambitious and wants to attend a school where she can reach her full potential. Can you please help me turn her dreams into a reality.

      SAILI recruits in late Grade 6 to start high school on scholarship or in mid grade 9 to start scholarship in grade 10. Learners must be attending a SAILI high school to apply in mid grade 9. https://saili.org.za/scholarships/partner-schools/

      You can apply to a better school in your area and, if accepted, you can apply for a reduction in school fees with the school bursar. https://saili.org.za/what-does-the-law-say-about-school-fees/

      There will be other scholarships to apply for during Grade 9 to start in Grade 10- MAD Leadership and Capitec.

      From time to time other schools are added to our scholarship list. In your area you could try De Kuillen, Bellville (Afrikaans medium), The Settlers or Pinelands.

      All the best
